Bioartificial Polymeric Materials: Natural and Synthetic World Joining in Biomaterials Research
The interactions of life science and material science, to use the great potentiality of the biological systems in realising both new materials and new industrial processes, have been successfully put into practice during the last few years, especially in the close related fields of biomaterials, bioengineering and biotechnologies.
